The first time I went to Beit Guvrin many years ago was taking a group of mine to the “Dig for a Day” experience. I cherish this day and remember how happy my clients were.
This park is located on the slopes of the Judean Mountains in Central Israel about 15 km from Kiryat Gat. Here are the ruins of Maresha one of the towns of the times of the First Temple, and a town of the Roman era.

Beit Guvrin Maresha National Park is located on Road # 35 across from
the Kibbutz bearing its name at the crossroads that led from Jerusalem
and the Judean Mountains to Hebron. It is located at an altitude of 820
to 1100 meters above sea level.
Visiting this National Park is an unforgettable experience. You become a “famous” archaeologist for a day, and bring home many memories.
